Usage[change source]

Extra chronologies may be added to {{Infobox album}} and {{Infobox single}}, depending on which version of this template is used. Both add the proper header, color, and formatting (depending on the |type= designation) and are added to the infoboxes in the |misc= field.

If this template is substituted, it will return a cleaned-up copy of itself (see Wikipedia:Substitution trick) with unnecessary parameters removed and deprecated parameters replaced. Parameter indentation will also automatically be fixed.

Infobox album version[change source]

Albums and EPs
{{{artist}}} chronology
{{{prev_title}}}
({{{prev_year}}})
{{{title}}}
({{{year}}})
{{{next_title}}}
({{{next_year}}})

The album version provides the previous, current, and next albums and the years of their release. The titles appear in italics, with the current title also in bold. Extra formatting does not usually need to be added.

Code
{{Infobox album
...
| misc        = {{subst:Extra chronology
 | artist     = 
 | type       = 
 | prev_title = 
 | prev_year  = 
 | title      = 
 | year       = 
 | next_title = 
 | next_year  = 
 }}
}}
artist
The name of the artist, with live album, EP, etc., appended to produce either "Artist live album chronology", "Artist EP chronology", etc. If just the artist's name is used, the header will display "Artist chronology".
type
Specify studio, live, compilation, etc., as detailed in {{Infobox album/doc/type}} – this triggers the header color and formatting.
prev_title
Enter the name of the previous album. If it has a WP article, add a link.
prev_year
The year the previous album was released.
title
Enter the name of the current or article title. This should not be wikilinked, since it should be the subject of the article.
year
The year the current album was released.
next_title
Enter the name of the next album and link as appropriate.
next_year
The year the next album was released.
Notes
All parameters are optional except |title= and |type=. Horizontal lines replace the header row if you omit |artist=.

Infobox single version[change source]

Singles
{{{artist}}} singles chronology
"{{{prev_title}}}"
({{{prev_year}}})
"{{{title}}}"
({{{year}}})
"{{{next_title}}}"
({{{next_year}}})

In addition to providing the previous, current, and next singles and the years of their release, the single version allows two song titles to be entered. This is useful for double A-side singles, such as "Ruby Tuesday"/"Let's Spend the Night Together". The titles appear in quotes, with the current title also in bold. Extra formatting does not usually need to be added.

Code
{{Infobox single
...
| misc         = {{subst:Extra chronology
 | artist      = 
 | type        = single
 | prev_title  = 
 | prev_title2 = 
 | prev_year   = 
 | title       = 
 | title2      = 
 | year        = 
 | next_title  = 
 | next_title2 = 
 | next_year   = 
 }}
}}
artist
Enter the name of the artist to produce "Artist singles chronology". (The word "singles" is automatically added for singles chronologies.) Adding American, UK, etc. after "Artist" will display "Artist American singles chronology", "Artist UK singles chronology", etc.
type
Specify single.
prev_title
Enter the name of the previous single. If it has a WP article, add a link.

Leave blank, unless the previous is a double A-side single. Then enter the name of the previous single second or flip side and link as appropriate.

The year the current single was released.
